To Read or Not To Read:
The title of this book is very aptly chosen which goes well with the theme and is quite intriguing. I wish the cover would have been more pondered upon, nonetheless, the message gets conveyed by this strange man behind the mask on cover. The writing style is free on errors, first person narrations, topsy-turvy twists, and past-present toggle switch; all of which makes this story stand out from the rest in this genre. The plot line generate interest as it starts, however, fails to maintain the same kind of grip as the reader approaches towards the end. If you are a mystery lover then you will thoroughly enjoy this story and those with vivid imagination will have a movie playing in your head. All in all, a good read and a book you can relax with on your free days.
